Asbestos NESHAP Program

Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Asbestos NESHAP Program 

The Air Quality Division (AQD) of the DEQ has been delegated to implement the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) program for asbestos in the state of Michigan. The asbestos NESHAP protects the public and environment by minimizing the release of asbestos fibers during renovation and demolition activities. Advanced notification is required to ensure all precautions are being taken to minimize asbestos emissions.

Oversight of this program includes receiving and reviewing Notifications of Intent to Renovate/Demolish Forms for content and completeness. This program is also responsible for conducting inspections of asbestos removal and demolition projects to determine compliance with the NESHAP regulations. To determine applicability please consult the NESHAP Regulations or Fact Sheet.

  • MIOSHA Asbestos Program:

    The Construction Safety and Health Division of the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (DLARA) implements the, Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Act (MIOSHA), the Asbestos Abatement Contractors Licensing Act, the Asbestos Workers Accreditation Act, Asbestos General Industry Standard and the Asbestos Construction Standard. The primary function of the program is to assure that people working with asbestos are properly trained and that individuals performing asbestos abatement comply with the rules and standards. The rules and standards are designed to protect not only the individual employee performing asbestos abatement work but also the general public that may occupy the area or the building in which the work occurs.

    The requirements of the Acts and Standard include work practices, training and abatement project notifications. The MIOSHA program also licenses asbestos abatement contractors, approves training courses, accredits workers, conducts plan reviews and compliance investigations.
